    a category entirely cooked up by the Ku Klux Klan in the 1920s, it had no independent social existence or context before the Klan's "immigration reform" of the 1920s.  While we no longer are strictly under the 1924 Klan law, all of their categories and characterizations remain in force as the law of the land.

Some people, apparently, never develop beyond the suckling stage even as they grow larger and larger.
